If you’re an appreciator of classic timepieces and our exquisite watchwinder boxes, we’re willing to bet that you have a taste for the finer things in life which hark back to the more glamorous times of yesteryear. Vaping may be all the rage, but excuse us if we choose to enjoy the odd fine cigar on special occasions.
If you enjoy a luxurious cigar every now and again, it’s also likely that you have a soft spot for the classic gadgets and gizmos which come with them; from humidors, to cigar cutters. Today we’ve rounded up five of our favourite luxury lighters to put a decadent spark in your life…
1. Atelier Ligne Lighter, S T Dupont (£950.00)
This glamorous blue Chinese lacquered lighter from S T Dupont features clean, art deco inspired lines and yellow gold trim to create an effortlessly stylish, slightly understated piece of sheer quality.
2. Ecaille Chinese Lacquer Lighter, Carran d’Ache (£1120.00)
Another stunning, vintage-feel lacquered lighter from classic lighter makers Carran d’Ache. Ultra slim and incredibly elegant, this hexagonal model is gold plated and uniquely stamped on the underside to confirm its pedigree.
3. Clous de Paris Decor Lighter, Cartier (£595.00)
A slighter lighter with a more restrained, modern feel. This oval lighter is made from black composite and finished with palladium detailing.
4. The Count in Black, Pierre Cardin (£53.95)
At the far more affordable end of the spectrum, this minimalist beauty from Pierre Cardin offers style and substance in spades, with a flip top flint ignition.
5. Gaidzag Spherical Cigar Lighter, Cu-bar (£255.00)
For something somewhat more ostentatious which certainly won’t fit in your pocket, this impeccable, spherical table lighter, made from brown or black, seven-times-polished, obsidian, makes a glamorous ornament.
